This might sound silly, but I have really good memories with this nail polish! I remember lending it to friends, and bringing it with me to New York the first semester I lived in the city.
However, I almost never wore it myself. I decided to put it to the test once and for all to see if I actually liked the polish itself. Purple Pizzazz is a really unique nail polish.
It is a purple-pink metallic polish with a holographic shimmer. The formula is good, but on the sheer side so I applied three coats for opacity. I truly saw the light — this polish is just not for me! Sometimes it can be difficult to get rid of things that you have fond memories of, even if that thing is nail polish. Please let me know in the comments if you still own any polishes from the Confetti brand, and if you like them!

Happy Friday! Here at Adventures in Polishland I am always focused on living a fabulous and affordable life. One of my favorite parts of each week is going through the Sunday paper and clipping coupons. I then match the coupons up with the weekly sales to score awesome deals at the drugstore. I like to buy beauty products regularly, not just for myself, but for blog reviews and giveaways. I went to my local CVS for this particular shopping trip.
I really wanted to purchase the Maybelline Shine-Free Foundation from the Fit Me line because I used it in the past and really loved it. There is no use buying items just to use a coupon! I grabbed the mascara up for either a gift item or a future giveaway here. I was also on the hunt for a new blush for the fall, so I picked one up from the True Match line to try. Sometimes I have specific coupons for beauty products, other times I will receive percentage off coupons, but it changes every week.
That is still an incredible savings!
Buy 1 Get 1 Free select vitamins. I decided to put it to the test once and for all to see if I actually liked the polish itself. A few months ago, a member of the nail blogging community passed away. I then match the coupons up with the weekly sales to score awesome deals at the drugstore. Last up is Julep in Nikki.
It makes saving so easy, and shopping really fun! All in all, I hope you enjoyed this Drugstore Beauty Haul and found my couponing tips and tricks helpful. I go to the drugstore about once per week, so if you would like to see how I use coupons to save money on a regular basis, please let me know in the comments! I am not affiliated with nor am I sponsored by CVS, but it is definitely my drugstore of choice for beauty deals at the moment.
Make sure you stop by for some new goodies, either for yourself, or for your friends — the holiday season is just around the corner! What beauty products have you purchased from the drugstore lately?
I fell in love, and had to pick up a couple more! Let me show you the Butter Glosses I have in my makeup collection! In addition, it packs a sheer amount of color to the lips, and can be worn alone or over another lip product. It is perfect for daily wear, and can be layered over many nude or pink lipsticks. Last but not least is Peach Cobbler, a bright red-orange gloss.

Peach Cobbler is quite pigmented, and brighter than I normally wear. It does look great with my fair skin tone, and I just need to go ahead and wear it. Peach Cobbler is a great gloss to wear any time of year as well! Plus, both CVS and Ulta offer coupons and sales on NYX on a regular basis, so you can score these for just a couple dollars if not less!
These glosses are really great quality for the price, and I highly recommend them! What are your favorite NYX products? After tackling the orange nail polish in my collection, I moved onto the yellows and decided which ones I should keep. It turns out I owned three polishes in the neon yellow shade, so I tested each one to see if I could get rid of any as part of The Great Polish Destash. Let me show you the three neon yellows I had, and which I decided to keep.
This polish is actually retired now, so it would be difficult to find it in stores.
Last up is Julep in Nikki. I remember disliking Nikki when I first tested it out, but for some reason I liked it much better this time around! Nikki is definitely a more green-toned yellow, but the formula is great and nearly opaque in two coats. Once I tested out all three polishes it was clear that each shade is a little bit different.
Then, I decided which of the two remaining polishes to destash.
Thus, I decided to keep two out of three. Not too shabby! All in all, I was surprised to have three neon yellow polishes in my collection, and even more shocked when each shade turned out to be a bit different. Make sure to stay tuned for more Dare to Compare posts as The Great Polish Destash continues, and let me know what your favorite neon yellow polish is in the comments!
Happy Saturday! Even though this collection was limited edition, I spotted this polish at my local CVS a couple months ago. Let me show you the stunning Planks a Lot! Planks a Lot is a purple creme polish that I would call a dusty purple. Planks a Lot also has a flawless formula that is opaque in two coats.
Even though OPI nail polish is a bit more expensive than most polishes I purchase, I find that I almost always love the formula and application. I found myself staring at my nails a lot when I was wearing Planks a Lot! All in all, I am so happy this nail polish appeared at my local CVS store!
I know that not every location carries OPI, but keep an eye out. You can also grab Planks a Lot on Amazon for an affordable price. Happy Tuesday! I happily picked out Milani 3D Holographic polish in Cyberspace! The nail polish community goes crazy for holos, and I had to understand why!
Let me show you what all the fuss is about. Cyberspace is a light blue holographic polish. What is a holo polish, you ask? The easiest way to describe it is picturing a rainbow on your nails! The polish sparkles in the sunlight, and reflects every color you can think of!
